Fresh Art Tour

Now that the Spring Fresh Art tour is just around the corner and most likely I will visit and explore some new artists and more studios, it is only fair that I share the pictures from the Fall Fresh Art tour 2011. It was a long list of studios that I had wished to visit but ended up spending the entire day at the Maiden Rock City along Lake Pepin on WI Hwy. 35.

View of Lake Pepin from one of the Galleries
We visited one Antique shop, Basil's and two Art Galleries - Swan Song Gallery and Secret Heart Gallery. Here are some pictures and a few words too....


Swan Song Gallery:

Secret Heart Gallery:

Beautifully decorated home and Gallery of the Artist 
After spending many hours looking at art and getting my fill of inspiration, we turned our attention to our grumbling tummies and thankfully there was a bakery across the street from the Galleries that looked inviting. We found out the 'Smiling Pelican Bake Shop' sells hand made goodies that are extremely popular and things tend to sell out fast. We sampled a few last remaining pieces of pies and have returned to the shop several time since that visit...

Mmmm... these are the best jammers ever... 

Hope it wouldn't take me this long to share pictures from the Spring Fresh Art Tour... I am looking forward to it
